Stelis emarginata ‘yellow’ – 365 days of orchids – day 1304

Stelis emarginata is a very variable species and we have three very distinct clones. We recently posted our clone ‘big orange’ (below) and today we have our yellow clone

As you can see the yellow clone has smaller flowers but longer spikes and both clones are very floriferous.

Stelis emarginata is native to Central America where it grows from 1800m to 3500m in cool forests both wet and not so wet which explains why this species is straight forward in cultivation. We grow the species in Cool Americas where the orange clone flowers in spring, the yellow clone flowers in Summer and the small orange clone in the autumn – perfect.
